Nautilus Labs and Kongsberg Digital have announced a partnership to include Nautilus Labs in the Kognifai open ecosystem, which the companies believe will deliver seamless extraction, contextualisation and analysis of vessel data for use in artificial intelligence (AI) driven performance tools.
The agreement will see the integration of Nautilus Platform within Kongsberg Digital’s Kognifai open ecosystem.
Kongsberg’s Vessel Insight service, hosted in Kognifai, provides a secure and dependable vessel-to-cloud data infrastructure which captures, aggregates and contextualizes all data derived from a vessel’s sensors and other assets, transferring it for storage in the cloud.
Nautilus Labs puts machine-learning algorithms to work, deploying historical, real-time and predictive analytics to optimize fleet and voyage performance.
Nautilus Platform recommends optimal vessel and voyage operating configurations, automatically surfacing insights in the form of recommendations that increase a vessel’s financial returns and improve environmental sustainability.
In a statement, the companies said the technologies seamlessly integrate together to bring about substantial, across-the-board improvements for shipping companies.
Kongsberg Digital’s Vessel Insight service gives teams and stakeholders secure and instant access to their vessel data in a structured, standardized and user-friendly format, while the Nautilus Platform provides intelligent and real-time decision support.
The result is a joint solution which enhances and encourages cross departmental collaboration while also reinforcing transparency and accountability between key business stakeholders.
The operational advancements additionally help businesses not only meet but surpass their profit and sustainability targets.
Eirik Næsje, VP of Vessel Insight, Kongsberg Digital, said “The seamless integration of these platforms is driven by a mutual resolve to deliver consolidated value to our clients, providing them with best-in-class solutions.
“It’s rewarding to see our ethics and principles reflected in a forward-thinking partner like Nautilus Labs, while the distinction of being a Nautilus-preferred provider will increase our global ambit.”
